Insert Tale from Valinor Here

I am going back on a promise that I made.

It was really hard to get this part together.  I had all these ideas of what I wanted to happen floating around in my head, but then I would reread The Silmarillion and notice that certain ideas contradicted canon which is a huge no-no.  And then I had the opposite problem: things in The Silmarillion that I had to somehow work into this story.  Additionally, the narrative style was really hard.  I wasn't sure how to introduce certain characters because they didn't seem like the type of people that Maedhros would be writing about, at least not yet.

And that is why I have no Tale from Valinor for you today.  I am going to work really hard on it this week in hopes of finishing as soon as possible, and then I will plop it right in here for your reading pleasure.  I am so sorry that I couldn't finish on time!  But I figured it would be better to post quality writing than to smack together some haphazard incoherent jottings (which is mostly what I have at this point).

But excuses aside, next week is the last part of Maedhros the Tall, and I am working really hard to wrap up all the loose ends.  As I have been rereading the Sil, I have found a few quotations that seem good places to launch off into a new fanfiction, so I have a few ideas circulating.  If you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments.  Thank you!


  1. Aw! That's too bad! I'm sorry it isn't going as smoothly as you would like but you will find a way ;)

    2. You're welcome! My sisters give me too much so I need to shed some on others :D
